It started off as a new decade, a glimpse into uncharted territory . An election year, a leap year, and the year of the rat in the Chinese Zodiac. I found myself starting a new business,. Nomadic Nolan’s Travel and kicked off things with a trip to Mexico City to give a review of North America’s largest metropolis and explore my roots. On that trip, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash on my last day before returning home. I remember getting a work out in at the hotel gym and shedding tears while I exercised. As expected I had great food in Mexico, and went to the ancient city of Teotihuacan to visit the pyramids. A few weeks later I went to Miami for more business and had great Cuban food. Then came March and along came Covid. Our economy was floored, months of lock down and gaining weight. I spent many days wondering when things would be normal again. Things got worse, then got better and then we were somewhat free again during the summer. I decided to take road trips with my dad. We visited some of the greatest parks and attractions in the SW United States including Zion, The Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Sedona Arizona, Lake Tahoe, Mammoth Lakes, Bryce Canyon and I played golf at some of the most epic courses these eyes have ever seen. The Lakers won the NBA title, and the Dodgers won the World Series. Joe Biden defeated Trump. I made a trip to LA to play Wilshire country club with my good friend John and saw my friends Ryan, Dave & Jenny while I was there. Drewski was in the mix and Rachel Rach was there to have some fun too. I even made it to Hawaii to see Jamonica, Mike, Kayla, Aden, and Vanessa. CJ, Chris and Garrett were there for me this year and countless others reached out to me to see how I was doing. 2020 was a time for growth, a time of reflection, a time of conspiracy, a time of fear, and a time of appreciation. There are so many things that happened that I am thankful for in 2020 and as bad as things were, there were so many wonderful bright spots I will never forget… Cheers to all of you and Happy New Year! Let’s have a great 2021. God bless you all from Nomadic Nolan!
Like an angel from heaven my friend Antonio came to me with an amazing opportunity to become an independent travel agent. I’ll be up front, because of my love for vacations and blogging he had my ear as soon as he said travel. After hearing him out and going over the process I signed up and launched my own travel portal where you, your friends, and family can now book flights, hotels, rental cars, cruises and vacation packages. That’s right! You can now book travel on caseynolan.com & booking is simple. Click on the Book Travel button on the menu bar above or click here to start planning your next trip. Also, please leverage the information and blog posts on my site to get ideas, and you’re always welcome to reach out to me by email to ask any questions. Happy travels!
I’ve been quite active this summer having traveled to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and a few small towns in between. It’s been great catching up with friends and building on memories. I’ve been driving Lyft on the side to make extra money for my travel expenses and it’s been amazing meeting so many people from all over the world. I have truly found a part time business where I can make my own hours and cash in on my rides whenever I want. Las Vegas has been really good to me and I’m really happy here. Anyway, I have been slacking on my blog and have so much to share. I decided it was time to create a consolidated post and highlight some of my best pictures of food, golf, and travel over this amazing summer. I’ll get into details later…Enjoy.

With 3 locations in the San Francisco Bay area Stacks restaurant is known for their delicious breakfast options. Stacks restaurants also provide a beautiful floral ambiance that could put a smile on anyone’s face. My friend Mike and I decided to stop and eat at the Burlingame location this time. The experience is a lot like the San Francisco location, minus the city views and the small park across the street you will find in the city. I highly recommend stacks as a must stop for breakfast lovers, especially if you love pancakes, because they have some of the best. You can find Stacks at 361 California Dr Burlingame CA 94010, 501 Hayes St San Francisco CA 94117, or 600 Santa Cruz Av Menlo Park CA 94025.
